    Almost all of the animal species of the Antarctica are dependent on the sea. The largest true “land” animal is a wingless midge is about 1/2 inch long. Antarctic species tend to be warm-blooded and large to survive the extreme cold. Also, the entire area around Antarctica has been declared an international whale sanctuary.
